Whitetail Deer in Bragg Creek

The cloudy mornings over the weekend created very even, diffused light around the backroads of West Bragg Creek.  I was out with the family enjoying the scenery and we came across a lot of whitetail deer.  Some young lone males, mothers with one or two babies and a few older groups of twos and threes.

Very nice light to photograph these beautiful animals in.  They and their cousins, the mule deer, are very common around Bragg Creek but I can’t imagine getting tired of seeing them.

    I’m enjoying looking through your photographs. They are all excellent and give a sense of life and rhythm. I love the lowest photo of this post – what grace there is in nature.

  3. Thanks for your comment IH.
    The only shooting I do is with a camera. Never thought much of the other kind but the world has room for all types. As with any hunting, I just hope that any you do take down you eat the meat and use the skin. Hunting only for the prize or the rack is wicked in my book.
    Cheers,
    Chris

  4. Lovely whitetail picture.. I might not shoot them.. Adorable bambi..

    Whitetail deer are found across the North American region, at 29 million strong, including where cities are expanding. These areas intrude on what was once the whitetails domain. As deer become more and more exposed to this humane society, they become less afraid of humans. In these areas you can find deer walking right up to you, not spooked one bit, and coming into your yard to find whatever morsel of food they can find.
